But, what does it take to be a great leader in the federal government? Is it something that can be learned or do you have to be born with "it"? Plus, how should feds deal with ineffective leaders in their offices?

Suzanne Logan, the director of the Office of Personnel Management's Center for Leadership Development and Federal Executive Institute joined Federal News Radio for a special online chat about leadership in the federal ranks.

An archived version of the chat is available now below.

Logan has spent her entire career in a learning environment, with time as the chief academic officer for the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and 17 years as an academic administrator at Texas Tech University.

This online chat is part of Federal News Radio's special report, Top Leaders in Federal Service.
